For a few years now my parents have been dropping their extra change into a container each evening. Sometimes they stick dollar bills in, too. When the kids find loose change lying around the house they run to put it in the container.
And so, a few days ago, we decided to count it to see just how much had been collected. We were surprised by the total:
How easy to save money by just collecting loose change. Now when our refrigerator completes its slow death and has to be replaced, we’ve already got a nice fund started to be put toward it.
